We are a family of four with teenage sons who are now mostly away. We own a beautiful 40 acre croft on a Scottish Island called Lismore. It is a long, slim island situated at the mouth of the great Glen in loch Linnhe and is easy to get to; (5 min from Appin and 50 min from Oban by boat). This is a lush, fertile island with incredible views of the surrounding mountains and waters.
Our vision is to create a beautiful and inspirational nugget of Scotland where we can live self sufficiently and gently on the land, however we have a lot to do to get there and need plenty of help. I am a textile artist and run my business from a studio on the croft. (See www.mogwaiidesign.com) I run textile retreats as well as make products and commissions for sale. My husband is a house builder however he will soon turn his focus to all the things that need attending to on our land. We have 38 Shetland sheep, 3 hens, 3 cats and one dog so if you're allergic to animal hair or dust, best stear clear! We... more inside

We live in a beautiful hillside location in Aberdeenshire. Our property is a smallholding with milking goats, sheep and various poultry. We are also gradually converting land for the production of fruit and vegetables.

The help we require varies with the time of year. In early April, we start lambing. At other times help is needed with vegetable growing, weeding, fencing and field work. The minimum length of stay is one week.

Accommodation is in a cosy caravan with a beautiful view.

Although we are in a very rural location there is a regular bus service that runs 3/4 mile from the house which is on the main route from Inverness to Aberdeen. There are also train services from both Huntly and Keith which are each 5 miles away.

About us: we have 2 children of 9 & 6 who are homeschooled.

Hi All,

My wife and I are building two Straw bale holiday lodges in our 5 acre site in Aberdeenshire.

We are looking for volunteers to help build the second lodge. This will involve learning how to build with straw, and once this is completed we will lime render the straw to protect it from the elements. We also intend to install a green (sedum) roof on both lodges.

We are looking for help mostly with the building project, but there might be a bit of general gardening/maintenance work around the land too.

We will provide food and accommodation in the form camping (toilets and showers on site). We can supply everything you need; tents, sleeping bags, camp beds electric hook up, etc..

Below is a rough timetable of dates and planned work to be carried out on the lodges:

Wednesday 14th June Thursday 6th July 2017
- Put up the straw walls, Compress, straighten, strap and trim the bales.
- Lime render the bales

We are looking for short & long term help, either with farm or building work or a mix depending on your preference & experience.

We are a 20 acre family croft in a quiet location where we like help with a wide range of jobs including all aspects of growing vegetables for a box delivery round (March - December), lambing (April), firewood, tree planting, fencing, building, animal care (sheep, bees, cattle, hens). A good work ethic is more important than previous experience & we love to learn from our volunteers too!

Future projects include building a load bearing straw bale house with traditional post & beam verandas, any trades / prior experience is very welcome! (Summer 2017 onwards)

If you are looking for a long term placement then we can teach you how to grow veg & run a veg box scheme & depending on experience this would be a partly paid position.

Bus stop 1 mile away, 3 miles to village with shops, sandy beaches, dolphin watching, mountain biking (Learnie Red Rock t... more inside

It will also be a unique chance to witness a Scottish Clan Gathering where 650 Macleans from all over the world will be at the castle on Saturday 24th June for a day of festivities and entertainment.

We will need you to also help with daily household chores as well as preparing an evening meal as we will be so busy. Please see below for more details on our little family! Car licence would be very useful but not essential.

"As a volunteer at Chisholme House you are appreciated for who you are, not only for what you do."

This is a place of great beauty set in the heart of the Scottish Borders. It is primarily a school and retreat centre. The 187 acre estate offers an ideal space in which to retreat, engage in study and experience the reviving effect of being close to nature.


We accept help throughout the year but at the moment we are particularly looking for help over the summer. Come and join volunteers from all over the world for a week or two of satisfying work in Chisholme's walled garden and estate - and help too in preparing the wonderful meals for which we are famous. You can come for one of our special volunteer weeks when a programme of activities complements work outside - or at any other time. Please see the website for more details http://chisholme.org/calendar/12/59-Volunteer-Week-June.html


Volunteers are a vital part of life here. You may be involved in diverse activities suc... more inside

We prefer short term helpers - a few days up to no more than 3 weeks please.

We are Cathy (38 who mainly works from home) and little boy who is 5 years old and home-educated. We live in a beautiful little cottage slap bang in the middle of a nature reserve.

We like to have 2 helpers so friends are welcome to apply, alternatively we are happy to take 2 single travellers - but please be aware you may need to share a sleeping area with another helper (who we will ensure is the same sex and similar age to you.)

We do not take helpers without seeing pictures, so if you do not have photos on your profile, please let us know your Facebook page or other.

Our home is small and so unfortunately you won't have a bedroom but will be sleeping in the office during winter or in a tent in the garden in warmer weather. You will of course have a warm bed and access to the house 24 hours a day though.

We have a big kitchen, sitting room (with X-box, Wii and internet TV) and big gard... more inside

This is a rural setting but on fast frequent train and bus routes to both Edinburgh and Glasgow. I have only just joined HX but been hosting on CS for years and you may get a better idea of me both as an individual and as a host, see my website link above.

I have just moved from Edinburgh to a former farmhouse outside Edinburgh sort of halfway between Glasgow and Edinburgh. As of this morning I have not yet updated my CS profile to reflect this. Too busy with unpacking cleaning and all the things I have to do now I am here and for the next many months. Hence my joining HelpX

I am looking for some light help cleaning organising outside help. planting etc and even some admin or web research work if it suits

I have no fixed views on how long you can come for 2 or 3 days or longer. Even had CS who came to my last place for 2 days and stayed 2 months

Might suit someone looking fr a central but rural setting to explore Glasgow Edinburghgh and Scotland and or some... more inside
